Package: fonts-noto
Version: 20181227-1
Severity: important

The package description states
"Use this package if you want all Noto fonts".

But if one puts "APT::Install-Recommends 0;" in /etc/apt/apt.conf,
some noto fonts, namely


are not installed. They should be depended instead of recommended.
